Research-Oriented Degree Programs
Berkeley EECS offers three degrees for planning a career in industrial R&D and teaching. The Master of Science (M.S.), the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) and the combined M.S./Ph.D.
Equal Access to Application Assistance Program
The student-run Equal Access Assistance (EAAA) program aims to ensure that all applicants to higher degree programs (M.S./Ph.D.) at Berkeley EECS have access to guidance on the higher degree application process. One current (or recent graduate) in EECS will provide feedback on your statement of purpose, personal history statement, CV/resume, and other application materials in advance of higher-degree application deadlines in the fall semester. This feedback will be Berkeley- and admissions-focused, as opposed to grammar or formatting advice.
Application for admission to Berkeley EECS is a process that must be completed separately; participation in EAAA does not guarantee admission nor affect the admissions decision-making process in any way.
